I Feel Totally Creeped Out! in Block

We’re on the top floor and getting ready for work this morning just after 8:30 and saw a police van with flashers but no siren drive past slowly. We’re always having idiots here jumping into the freezing cold river so I thought it was one of them. Our car was parked outside as hubby was getting it cleaned out. As I left our flat I saw a police car parked outside. Our shop and flat are literally just around the corner from each other and about 2 minutes walk apart. As I was setting up the shop with lights on etc. just before 9 an ambulance went past with flashers but no sirens. 

A short time later my hubby came bursting into the shop saying he’d just been around the house of a lady neighbour in her late 70s or early 80s. He’s seen her university trained son..he’s a Pharmacist…running around the street completely naked and he told my hubby ‘’I think I’ve just killed my mum’‘. Mum and son live together and their house is opposite ours. 

Hubby cautiously went in with the police and a female distant neighbour as hubby and I and neighbour both know mum and son,  and found the lady flat on her back on the floor behind the settee drifting in and out of consciousness,  covered in blood, livingroom was wrecked with ornaments etc. broken, bloodied knives. Lady had half her ear off, facial injuries, head injuries, hip injuries, all kinds of nasty things. No idea if son has a history of attacking her or if it’s the 1st time or if he has a mental health history.  She’s a lovely lady but we don’t know if she’ll survive or not but hubby and neighbour did their best to comfort her until the Paramedics took her off. Watch this space!

Oh, you are right. That's creepy. I hope she is going to be okay.

Thank you! Fingers crossed she will be! She often comes into our shop for a sit down and a natter and laugh and walks past waving and smiling. She's not had a particularly good life but she did run her own self-employed business and she ended up reasonably well off. Being Irish and her then husband -she divorced him years ago - who is black American roughed her up and did all kinds of things and leaving her with 2 young sons to raise alone. She's been mugged by a twit on a bike who snatched her bag and all kinds of horrible things happened to her over the years, now one of her sons has basically tried to kill her! If I hear of any more I'll discretely post up here!
